“Cold bog standard fare”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Worst Chinese meal i have ever had. We opted for Sweet & Sour Chicken, Crispy Beef, Vegetable noodles and Chicken Rice, one large beer and one large coke €45. Food arrived quickly and was cold. Staff not interested when complaining that it was cold. Would not recommend eating here.

“best to avoid”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

the food was of poor quality, bland and overpriced. For example we had mixed starters consisting of two small skinny ribs, 2 deep fried wanton, 2 chicken satay. 2 spring rolls and a minute portion of seaweed - cost was 14 euros.

“You pay for what you get”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Saw the great value Tourist Special outside and we weren't absolutely starving so gave it a go. Meal quality wasn't that great compared to most other Chinese's I've been to worldwide. You could clearly see it was all about shipping people in and out as quickly as possible. Chicken balls for a main course called " Sweet & Sour Chicken" in the menu, frauds! Only positive was the price.
